EU's Oettinger sees chance of successful UK parliament vote in January - Reuters

According to reporting by Reuters, European Commissioner Guenther Oettinger signaled that he believes there's a chance that the UK's parliament could vote for the current withdrawal bill being tabled in January, which saw little chance of surviving the parliament's vote in December which got pulled last-minute by PM May.

European Commissioner Guenther Oettinger said on Thursday there is still a chance that Britain’s parliament will vote in favor of the Brexit agreement in January and that there was no public support for a disorderly Brexit or another referendum.

“It is not entirely unlikely that the British parliament will vote for the divorce agreement in January,” Oettinger told Funke Media Group in an interview. “There is certainly no majority for a disorderly Brexit or for a new referendum.”

Oettinger said that the likelihood of Britain remaining in the EU had increased slightly over the past few months. “Nevertheless, I assume that it will come to an exit at the end of March,” said Oettinger, the EU’s budget commissioner.
